The Dawn of a Dream by Ann Shorey Book Review

Dawn of a Dream, The (At Home in Beldon Grove)

From the Publisher:
The Dawn of a Dream (ISBN: 978-0-8007-3334-6, April 2011, $14.99) introduces readers to the third book in Author Ann Shorey’s At Home In Beldon Grove series.  Set in 1857, this story comes alive when newlywed Luellen O’Connell’s husband of just one month tells her he is leaving – and his reason leaves her completely astonished.

Determined to follow the dreams of her youth, Luellen sets out to obtain her teaching degree. But her wayward husband left something behind when he abandoned her. Can she overcome the odds and achieve her dream? Can she hide her secret, or will it crush her dreams? This is a story of one woman fighting against all odds but finding friends along the way who make the journey bearable.  

My Review:

This book kept surprising me.  From the very beginning, I kept thinking to myself - wow!  I can't imagine being in Luellen's shoes.  She was a very brave lady - even for today's terms.
At times I wanted to reach in the book and change circumstances for her.  The author had a knack for making me feel like I was right there.   The book was very encouraging to me.
Due to the very mature content, I would not suggest this for younger eyes.  

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
